My bearded dragon just loves hanging out in our screened in porch.
Every day in the summer I put in out there for an hour or two so that he can soak up the sun. He cannot stay out too long because it can be too hot. There really is no way for him to cool down outside and I don’t want him to die. In the winter, it is simply too cold for him to be outside. He loves running and playing in the large porch area though so I feel bad when I have to put him back in his little terrarium. I wish there was some way to have some climate control in the screened in porch. Darby is so close to the ground that I think some sort of underfloor heating and cooling system would work well. I have heard that there are pipes that can be installed under the flooring and they move hot water through them if you want heat. Cold water goes through them if you want to be cool. With the temperature set to 80 degrees year round, Darby could live outside year round. It would not matter that much of the climate controlled air goes out of all of the screens because the floor would still stay comfortable for my lizard. I imagine that something like this would be very expensive though. But maybe not too. I would only have to install underfloor heating and cooling in about 160 square feet. I definitely want to look into it for my little buddy.
